Groovy Gecko, specialist provider of on-demand streaming and live webcasting, and Kaltura, developer of the first open source video platform, today announced a partnership to distribute Kaltura's online video platform with Groovy Gecko's streaming and webcasting services.
The platform will allow Groovy Gecko's clients to create an integrated video ‘ecosystem'. This will enable them to easily store and manage all of their online video assets, both those created by Groovy Gecko, and from other sources, and easily publish them across the web with full multiple bit rate web and mobile support.
As clients can add metadata directly to the uploaded files, these become fully searchable, and websites can be created that are completely content driven and essentially ‘build themselves' as new videos are uploaded.
"Groovy Gecko is a leading provider of specialist webcasting and on-demand streaming," commented Ron Yekutiel, CEO and Chairman, Kaltura. "We are delighted to work with them to further enhance the service they offer to their customers."
"We have been very impressed with the Kaltura platform," commented Craig Moehl, CEO, Groovy Gecko. "By coupling the Kaltura platform, which has been expertly designed to store and manage video assets effectively, with our professional streaming services, we are able to offer our customers an integrated service, which enhances their use of video assets."
Both companies will be at Streaming Media Europe, Groovy Gecko will be exhibiting on stand 13/14, and Kaltura will be speaking at the event.
